Ryan departed yesterday, 8/28 for Salt Lake City, Utah. Today, he entered the Mission Training Center where his journey is about to began. He will be studying gospel doctrine and learning the Tagalog language there for nine weeks until he travels to the Philippines. We are all very proud of Ryan and his desire to serve a mission. We know that his experiences, trials, and struggles will shape into the man that he will become. Yesterday, we off a boy and in two years we will welcome home a man. We love you Elder Betancourt. See you in two years!

Cauayan Philippines Mission

Hello everyone!
This is my missionary blog!  I am setting it up so that everyone back at home can track my progress and hear about stories from my mission! I will be reporting to the Missionary Training Center on August 29th, 2012. I am so excited for this chapter of my life to begin! I am getting everything ready to go! I will get to address this one more time before I leave and then I am going to pass the responsibility on to someone else due to the fact that I wont be able to from the Philippines!
Take Care!
